What a great time in the Cooks! The islands is not just a 'travel destination' but a full culture immersion. The food, island dance, and just way of life is amazing. No fast food, casinos, or huge resorts are on the island. You can pick all the fresh fruits that you can imagine right from the trees/plants including papaya, mango, bananas, avocado, pineapple, star fruit, and many others that I haven't even heard of before! The people are so friendly and always smiling. One person offered cruise ship travelers their own scooter to explore Aitutaki saying 'No worries - everyone knows everybody here and what they drive so feel free to use my scooter" ! I look forward to visiting these special set of islands!
